Buy a bell, hang it on the door you use and when you go to take your pup out ring it and do a little dance n chant about pee pee outside. Then when she does pee, give her lots of good pats and rubs. I bought a bell when i had trouble training dexter, it really did the trick. He did have accidents here and there but thats expected

I tried the bell with Riley. It freaked him out and he wouldn't go near it.

A spotbot was my best friend. Right when I thought he would never get it, he just started going outside all the time. It was the same with Kaleb.

Urgh that sucks! the bell was the only thing that worked for me. My mother house trained all her dog by attaching them to her, and taking them out every 15 minutes.

Crate training works best in my house

What is crate training (why put my puppy in a cage?)
